This is a very pretty Amaryllis that has white petals with red edging and bright yellow pollen. The petals also have a very delicate crosshatch patterning that shows as very pale pink or green. The throat is a yellow-green. Each blossom is about 5″-6″ and each stem has about 6 blossoms, although with this one, 4 blooms opened and then the others. Then it sent up a second bloom stalk. It was in bloom for well over a month.
We had this as an indoor plant for its first year in bloom and now is out in the Tuxedo garden. Blubs should be planted with the neck of the bulb above ground. They should bloom is late spring or early summer.
